Harborside is an original San Diego Trolley Station without parking. The ground-level platforms (connected by a tarred over middle area for their entire lengths) begin and extend southeast of the 28th Street grade crossing. The San Ysidro platform is alongside Bay Avenue (with a low fence and no access) and has the standard brown pavilion-type canopy structure. The San Diego-bound platform just has two red bus shelter-type canopies for waiting passengers. There is no transit parking at this station, with the both platforms surrounded by private parking lots with low fences trying to keep all access to the platforms from 28th Street.

From September 28, 2013 through August 2014, the station was completely rebuilt under the trolley renewal project to have 6 inch high platforms replacing the former ones at ground-level. The new station has the standard renewed Blue Line station layout, with modern 6 inch high platforms. The track area is now normal ballast with 4 pedestrian crossings, 2 at each end of the platform that are step free, and two in the middle of the platform. Two larger cream-colored canopy structures on each platform provide more shade than the previous canopies. All access to the station has been reinforced to be from 28th Street, via a single walkway on each side of the tracks that leads up to a short staircase or a ramp up to the northwestern end of each platform, with lots more cream colored fencing and new plantings separating the platforms from the surrounding private parking lots.
